In order for your child to enter a Maryland public school for the first time, a physical examination by a physician or certified nurse practitioner must be completed either nine months prior to entering the public school or six months after entering the system.
Parents/Guardians are responsible for providing information to the school about their child's educationally relevant health history, including, but not limited to, such health concerns as chronic illness, allergy and physical disability. A form will be provided at the time of registration to be completed for the school nurse.
Guidelines are in place for those students who require medication during school hours.
*Parents must obtain a written order from the attending physician using the appropriate form:
*Students may not bring medication to school (this includes cough drops, nose sprays, creams)
*Over the Counter Medications may require a Doctor’s order
